Did you guys happen to read all of the ORC post on Wednesday? I’m getting pretty darn excited to watch the progress of these talented bloggers…..and don’t forget to check out the linking projects which are posted on Calling It Home on Thursdays. I plan on getting to those this weekend!
The other day I got an email from a reader about hanging natural roman shades with curtains. This was her dilemma.
Now if you are hanging the shades with an inside mount [inside the window moulding] like this:
Your return [bracket length] is not as critical. So that is hanging curtains 101.
Next up is hanging pictures. OK…..I know there are a million ways, ideas, thoughts on the internet about this. You don’t need a lesson but I am just going to go over my thoughts since I just hung some.
8 botanicals. And one foot. [not included in the vignette].
Arrangement #1. A little too much height. When you see the bench you will see why I felt that way.
Arrangement #2. Not bad but not a fan of top heavy. Plus still too tall.
Arrangement #3. Not a fan. Don’t like the holes at the corners. AND….that height issue is still there.
Arrangement #4. What if we tighten it up. The holes are still there. and so is the height………No.
Bingo….this gives it width with minimum holes at the corners. It will also balance with the bench as seen below.
And…..that’s a wrap. Except still waiting for the cushion.
Have a wonderful weekend….no rain for us here in Atlanta so I’m smiling about that. Tomorrow morning I am getting up at the crack of dawn to run this charity race for The Furniture Bank!
